The world is no longer governed by governments alone but by an evolving combination of actors that also draws from the private sector and civil society. The economic, social and environmental well-being of our world increasingly depends on the ability of these groups to work together in a socially innovative way to provide solutions to pressing local and global issues.
The ‘Agents of Change’ seminar series celebrates the protagonists leading the social innovation charge. This series exposed audiences to those change agents who have made significant contributions to their societies, by developing unique solutions to complex problems and persevering in the social enterprise sphere.
* The Centre on Asia and Globalisation’s Programme on Social Innovation and Change focuses on the social innovation arising in Asia from the intersection between the public, private and civil society realms. In particular, it is dedicated to the research and promotion of sustainable social enterprise within Asia.
